Lino Micciché, che già a Venezia, come inviato dell'Avanti!, aveva puntato il dito sui "troppi penzolamenti tra il retorico e il commosso, da una parte, e tra il satirico e il comico, dall'altra"[11], individuerà nel film di Rossellini l'archetipo di quello "spirito assolutorio" che avrebbe caratterizzato gran parte della produzione cinematografica italiana relativa a quel periodo storico.[12]
